Bewildering Stories welcomes...
Graciela Inés Lorenzo Tillard
With “The Hands,” in this issue, Graciela joins our substantial Latin American contingent. She’s an architect and teaches at a university. Her writing has appeared widely on the Net and some of her stories have been selected for anthologies.
Bewildering Stories welcomes authors who write in English as a second language, and we never cease to be amazed at their proficiency. Señora Tillard definitely holds a distinguished place among them.
The protagonist, Manuel, in “The Hands” seems eerily reminiscent of Meursault, in Albert Camus’ novel L’Étranger. Manuel and Meursault both meet a tragic fate, but Manuel’s is decidedly more pessimistic than Meursault’s.
Welcome to Bewildering Stories, Señora Tillard. We hope to hear from you again soon and often!
